Picard and the TNG Crew Boldly Return in Comic Book Form
Once upon a time, I used to read a lot of comic books. Then I discovered girls. I dunno, comic books just didn’t seem all that important after that. I still read a comic or two every now and then, but not sure if I’m going to pick up this “Star Trek: The Next Generation: Hive” Issue #1 when it arrives in comic book shops everywhere this September, courtesy of IDW Publishing.
The series will boast scripting duties by longtime “Star Trek” writer/showrunner Brannon Braga, who joins forces with fellow writer Terry Matalas and artist Joe Corroney for the series. Here’s a little of what to expect from Picard and company’s trip into comic book form:
In a distant future, where the deadly Borg have assimilated the entire Galaxy, Picard, his crew, and some unexpected allies must prove once and for all that resistance is not futile! Packed with mind-bending twists, time-jumping action, and revered, genre-defining characters, STAR TREK: THE NEXT GENERATION: HIVE promises to be a must-read event for fans of the TNG’s intrepid legacy.
The first story arc has Picard and company battling those impossibly hard to beat Borg. And, from the looks of the comic book cover below, Seven of Nine also shows up. Jeri Ryan, who plays the character back “in the day”, is a little older now, but thanks to the miracle of comic books, Seven of Nine will never, ever age. (Wait, I thought she was with the “Voyager” crew? When did she cross over to “The Next Generation”?)
Look for “Star Trek: The Next Generation: Hive” the comic book this September.
